1xBit first ran a government currency poker room, 1xbet. Instead of just adding bitcoin transactions like a lot of government currency poker rooms, they choose to make a new stand-alone end-to-end bitcoin site. This was the right choice and the market is rewarding them for it.
There is a lot going on here

If you can find it 1xBit has a simple but effective in-browser poker platform. You get all the basic table options like 4 color deck and custom bet-size slider settings. All the dialog boxes and controls work exactly as you would expect, so are easy to use.
We love that the lobby and multiple tables display directly below each other in the same window. This lets you just scroll up and down between them rather than having to switch windows when multi-tabling or checking the lobby.
It is annoying that you have to transfer money between your main balance and a separate poker balance. For us it did not work and we had to contact support multiple times to get it sorted out.
1xBit does rake differently, we think better, than any other bitcoin poker room. They simply take 1 % of your profit every time you leave a table. If you don’t win overall on the table, you pay no rake. Great idea!
1xBit has the lowest rake of all poker sites.
Range of tables
2, 6 and 9-handed no-limit Texas hold’em games are available but only 6-handed tables have action.
Stakes range from 0.01/0.02 mBTC up to 25/50 mBTC but only tables up to 3/6 mBTC have action. By bitcoin poker room standards this is a wide range with high stakes.
You can deposit and withdraw with about 20 different altcoins which will be converted into your bitcoin balance.
Privacy and security
100% first deposit bonus up to 1000 mBTC. The funds go into your account gradually as you play and you can easily opt-out.
There are several different bonuses and special offers depending on your interests, its nice that the terms and conditions are explained fully and clearly.
1xBit has a nice little poker room tucked into the corner of a much larger and more complicated site. If you are only interested in 6-handed no limit Texas hold’em it’s a great option.
Its also a great option if you want to transact in altcoins and if you want to have a sportsbook, casino and other gambling available from the 1 deposit.Visit 1xBit
